As for the costumes, sets, and photography, they were great for a film that was probably made on a shoestring.
Alas, things do not turn out well in Dan's case either.
But, nevermind, now co-worker Troy (the very handsome Andrew Keegan) wants to try his luck with the concept of extreme dating.
That gets Lindsay to thinking and not only about her work.
She, too, has had trouble with men and her close pal and mentor, Daniel, has had his heart crushed as well.
The others quickly conclude that the extreme circumstances of the accident were what caused love to bloom.
They decide that the path to true love is to purposely set each other up on “extreme dates” with the objects of their affections…He needs Lindsay and Daniel to help him fake a kidnapping of a pretty bank teller, Amy (Jamie-Lynn Sigler) so that he can pour out his heart to her.Uh, oh, is the pursuit of happiness about to go a little too far? It was funny, it was clever, and it had very attractive, talented cast.It's a stupid, painful movie about the lengths to which a collection of losers (we're meant to think they're kinda geeky cool, but really they're far from it) will go in order to find love. Devon Sawa (aging badly) gets tongue-tied around the ladies.Amanda Detmer has a reputation for being bitchy and accident-prone. Ultimately -- after a long setup that makes us think a sex comedy is in store for us -- Amanda and Devon hatch a plan to kidnap Andrew and the girl he's lusting after (Jamie-Lynn Di Scala), the idea being that she'll fall in love with him when he breaks them out of captivity.What with the tired, insulting plot, B-list cast, and quickie production values that emphasize sex appeal (but offer no actual sex), this really should have earned the Lampoon seal of mediocrity.
